Art Director & Conceptual Portrait Photographer currently based in Providence, RI. Available for commissions and exhibitions internationally.

Uninhibited and uncensored. Cooking Hobbyist, Shibari Artist, Biker, Bowler, & Gamer Geek. A goofball with a lively demeanor and intense passion. This makes me easily relatable, giving me a competitive edge among diverse groups of people, rendering even the most camera shy finding comfort and confidence in front of my camera.

Artistically colorful and emotionally deep. A distinctive blend of both Light & Dark. My work is an ongoing exploration of narratives that blend of soul, humor, personality, and subculture in stark contrast to the status quo.  I’m a crock pot of ideas on a low simmer, blending experimentation with raw emotions and risque nature. I like Bold and poetic, thought-provoking and daring, lively and personal. Emotion always comes first, then the rest of it second. 

Here lies an inseparable line between my life and my photographic art.
